    The tense and taut war-thriller from Park Chan-wook (Oldboy), JOINT SECURITY AREA, for the first time in 4K HDR exclusive to Umbrella, stations us between the turbulent sides of the North and South Korean border, entwined in an investigation as to the death of two soldiers with eleven bullets fired.

    Eight shots! The truth is there. A firefight occurs at the "Bridge of No Return" in the DMZ (De-Militarized Zone), and two North Korean soldiers are killed. The North claims that the incident was a flagrant attack by the South Koreans, while the South claims that one of their soldiers was kidnapped. In order to solve the dispute, the NNSC (Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission)dispatches half-Korean half-Swiss Army Intelligence Bureau officer, Major Sophie E. Jean. With no cooperation from either side, the case appears to be unsolvable with the potential for a coverup. The truth is much simpler and much more tragic. From acclaimed director Park Chan-wook (Oldboy, The Handmaiden) JOINT SECURITY AREA is at once a lyrical story of friendship and an examination of precarious international relations.
